A Richmond County sheriff's deputy sent to investigate a burglar alarm Tuesday said he discovered the business' front door shattered and a trail of lollipops leading away from the Get it to Go on the 3200 block of Deans Bridge Road.

The lollipop trail of about 40 suckers went from Georgetown Drive to where it petered out on Webster Road.

Surveillance camera footage shows the burglar, who remains at large, wearing a black and white mask and breaking into the business around 4:50 a.m., according to a report.
